TI Georgia and GYLA have been monitoring annually the activities of the High Council of Justice of Georgia since 2012, within the framework of the project ‘Promoting Rule of Law in Georgia’ (PROLoG), financed by USAID.
The goal of the report is to make the activities of the Council more transparent to the public, as well as to identify trends in order to increase the body’s efficiency and tackle issues of unfairness in the justice system.
